Listen to the vibrant beats of the String and Bamboo Orchestra Drum Team as they open the festival and welcome the Year of the Rat (or mouse, if you prefer) - prelude to a vibrant, fun-filled day! Make a Chinese clay pot and a butterfly fan. Watch artisans demonstrate the art of calligraphy and create red lanterns. See a Chinese lion dance and tip-toe into the auditorium for a special dance presentation by Olivia Liou and the American Chinese Dance Association. Master Bin He presents classical Chinese music by the String and Bamboo Orchestra. And do stay for the Chinese Kung Fu demonstration to learn some new moves! And don't forget to get your face painted by Bowers' artists! Sponsored by the Chinese Cultural Arts Council.
